Children of Blessing (DVD) 神佑的孩子 (DVD)
An Education in China
Brian Keeley, Jiang Xueqin

This film follows the hardships Lahu girls face as they come down from the hills to enroll at a Chinese primary school. The Chinese students laugh as the Lahu girls who finish last in races and on tests. One girl falls ill, and is sent home; another finds out her mother has run away. The girls' teacher feels frustrated and hopeless; the school principal wishes he had never admitted them. Can the Lahu girls make it in modern-day China? And what price will they have to pay? Do Chinese schools empower or assimilate China's minority children? "Children of Blessing" takes a controversial stance on this ever sensitive question.
